1791  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Felt Badge Swap Gallery!! (Send Out April 30) on: April 24, 2012 04:13:33 PM
I came home this afternoon to find a package from Sewphie. After reading the card in which she apologized for it being too big, and if I was hoping for a smaller badge she'd be happy to make me another one, I opened the little package and found... this!



I was scarcely able to breath when I saw it! It's one of the most amazing things I've ever seen -- you got right inside my head with this! The photo shows the wonderful detail of the embroidery (just look at the mandibles on the longhorn beetle! And the segments of all the legs! Shocked) but loses the lovely sheen of the beetle wings and the subtlety of the woodgrain.

I think I'm going to put it in a little frame under glass, and hang it on the wall right beside a case of real insects I have.

Thanks so much for this, Sophie. I couldn't possibly love anything more. And NO, it isn't too big! Cheesy

I'll say right now I intend to stuff my matchbox with goodies, because I have so much stuff to get rid of. (I know you never really end up with less that way, but I cherish my illusion.)

I'm here - thanks for the poke, Racky! Sending in my questionnaire now.

I have a pinterest but I can only pin off of other peoples pins. I can't get my pin button to work on google or any other sight. I even have people I'm following that I don't know how they got there. LOL  I'm just going with it.

One of the things Pinterest does when you sign up is to start you up with followers - people whose interests it guesses might match yours. It also adds all of your Facebook friends who are already on Pinterest. I just un-followed most of them immediately.

The "pin-it" button, though, only seems to be designed to work on Firefox. I don't know what you're supposed to do if you use Explorer.

My new Pinterest is http://pinterest.com/wulfslash2/

It's the perfect Girl Scout badge for the girls who's troop disbanded before she could get all the badges she wanted.

What a tragic one-line story!

Suereal, your tiny cookies look so edible! But am I seeing things, or do you have printed felt? Shocked

I finally got my felt order today. Smiley I've had good ideas for both my partners for weeks now and haven't been able to act on them. Now to find out if I was overly ambitious!

Sent today. Let's see if airmail to Australia is worth the extra cost. (Actually only about $10 more.) As the postal clerk explained it, the ship always takes the same length of time to Australia - about two weeks. But they don't dispatch it the moment they have my letter onboard - the container is only shipped when it's full. If you're lucky, your letter is one of the last loaded on and it sails immediately after. But if the ship has just gone, and your letter is one of the first into the new container, you have to wait until it fills up again. That can take a month or more. Sad

Okay, I'm in with the Pin! There's a kind of creepy quality to the way it kind of hustles into agreeing to stuff right up front, but I'll clear out all that.

Thanks, Monnie! I'll let you know if it works.

Oh Radmom, what a terrible thing to have happened. The loss of someone that young effects so many people. Take care of your husband and yourself.

Thanks for starting up the Book of Shadows Swap, MamanT. I wonder if it shouldn't be instead of the Litha swap, rather than in addition to it. I know I can only do one of the two. How do the rest of you feel about it?

And I know what you mean about the cost of postage, Quasior. All along I've been thinking I was keeping my package size nice and small, but when I got it packed up I realized it's much heavier than I expected. Ouch!
